```516                      A SIMPLE  PROBLEM IN  FORCED LUBRICATION                      [426
Of these (5) is satisfied by v in (1), and (6) is satisfied when w = 0 and p is independent of z.   Also, with use of (2), (4) becomes

where p: is the pressure at the outer radius ra.    If the layer is open at r1} and we reckon only pressures above atmosphere, pl may be omitted.
The whole force sustained by the layer of fluid between the radii r0 and rl is independent of w, being given by

If we suppose r0 = 0, so that the supply takes place on the axis itself, this becomes simply

but we have then to face an infinite pressure at the axis. In practice r0 would have to be finite though small, and would correspond to the radius of the perforation in the lower fixed plate, not much disturbing (11). In fact, if jp0 be the pressure of the feed corresponding to r0,
